It’s Friday and that means two whole days free from the distraction of ‘working’ to get in some quality science fiction time. And for those of you suffering from extreme cold, you really need something to warm you up.
So the question is this: What science fiction is on tap for your consumption this weekend?
For me, I’ll be trying to finish (again) Iain M. (the M stands for science fiction) Banks’ The Algebraist, which I’ve been working on for two weeks now. I’m also 5 episodes from finishing the Ga-Rei Zero anime series so I may crank that out as well. Of course, tonight will be filled with the newest episode of Psych and the return of Battlestar Galactica.
But if you’re looking for something to watch, in honor of the late Patrick McGoohan, we present the first episode of The Prisoner (helpfully streamed from AMC TV):
I’ve just started watching this series and it’s oddly compelling, in a kitschy, 1960’s way.
